To learn more, click here.

Please welcome back a terrific author to our Kitchen--Joyce Tremel! She's got news about her new mystery, and she's sharing a delicious recipe and book giveaway. Take it away, Joyce! xoxo ~ Cleo 

Thanks so much for having me back, MLKers. I can’t believe I actually have another book coming out—TANGLED UP IN BREW releases on October 4th! It honestly seems like yesterday that TO BREW OR NOT TO BREW was released.

TANGLED UP IN BREW has four recipes, one of which is the burger that chef Jake Lambert prepares for the competition at the Three Rivers Brews and Burgers Festival. 

While the burger is certainly tasty, I decided another recipe would do more in the way of tempting yinz guys to go off any diets you may be on. So I present you with the owner of Cupcakes N’at, Candy Sczypinski’s recipe for Caramel Pecan Brownies.



CARAMEL PECAN BROWNIES


Ingredients:

1 cup butter

1 12-oz. package semi-sweet chocolate chips

1-1/3 cups sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

4 large eggs

1 cup flour


Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet or mini-muffin pan with approximately 48 foil cups (2 inch size). Melt butter in large saucepan. Add chocolate chips and stir until melted. Add sugar and vanilla and mix thoroughly.

Remove from heat and add eggs one at a time, stirring thoroughly after each one. Stir in flour gradually until mixed well. Fill cups to approximately ¾ full. Bake for 25 minutes. Do not overbake.


CARAMEL TOPPING

Ingredients:

25 pieces chewy soft caramel candies, unwrapped

1 Tbsp. water

1 tsp. vanilla


Directions: Melt caramels and water in saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Drizzle caramel over cooled brownies and sprinkle with chopped pecans.



Thanks again for letting me share my recipe! 


~ Joyce



Joyce Tremel was a police secretary for ten years and more than once envisioned the demise of certain co-workers, but settled on writing as a way to keep herself out of jail. Her flash fiction has appeared in Mysterical-e, and her non-fiction has been published in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police magazine. Her debut novel, TO BREW OR NOT TO BREW was nominated for a 2015 Reviewers’ Choice Award for best amateur sleuth by Romantic Times. The second book in the series TANGLED UP IN BREW, will be released 10.4.2016, and the third book, A ROOM WITH A BREW, is tentatively scheduled for release in October 2017.

BEER TODAY, GONE TOMORROW...

Brew pub owner Maxine “Max” O’Hara and her chef/boyfriend Jake Lambert are excited to be participating in the Three Rivers Brews and Burgers Festival. Max hopes to win the coveted Golden Stein for best craft beer—but even if she doesn’t, the festival will be great publicity for her Allegheny Brew House.

Or will it? When notoriously nasty food and beverage critic Reginald Mobley is drafted as a last-minute replacement judge, Max dreads a punishing review. Her fears are confirmed when Mobley literally spits out her beer, but things get even worse when the cranky critic drops dead right after trying one of Jake’s burgers. 

Now an ambitious new police detective is determined to pin Mobley’s murder on Max and Jake, who must pore over the clues to protect their freedom and reputations—and to find the self-appointed judge, jury, and executioner.

  12. Thanks for the kind comments, everyone! When I made these brownies when the kids were home for Christmas, all 48 of them disappeared in less than two days. I think I only got one! Which is just as well because they probably aren't good for the waistline. But they are delicious!

  24. Hi! Thanks for sharing today! Brownies are a fave in my house and this version looks great, although I would leave out the nuts. I've been anxiously awaiting book 2! I own book 1 so I would choose Tangled up in Brew. I'm so happy to hear that book 3 is in the works. I hope this series has a long life!

  29. I don't think I could ever pass up a brownie. And hubby, who isn't a fan of chocolate, also doesn't pass on brownies. So this is certainly a recipe I will try.
    Your books also sound like something I need to try. So, congratulations on the release of the 2nd one, and here's to the future ones.

  31. I have the first book somewhere in my huge tbr box of books. I'll try and get to it sooner then later now. Love the recipe for the brownies but all I can do is drool. My partner and I have a 30lb weight loss goal program that started last week and will continue till we hit our goal weight hopefully well before next summer's vacation. I'd like to be back to at least a size TWELVE!

    Yes I would love to win Tangled to add to my massive home library (2200 and growing).
